btw, as far as I can tell I cannot see anymore VM issues with current CVS
kernel, what I get now is:

Kernel panic: for safety
In interrupt handler - not syncing
I believe this is fine with you, I mean, you told me this is because the
aic7xxx cannot restore, right?

the only VM pending bug right now (besides the mprotect feature request that I
already implemented at 85%) is the compound bugreport from Christoph, but to me
that sounds a kernel miscompilation, it makes no sense that PageCompound(p) ==
0 and after a nanosecond p->flags & (1<<PG_compound) == 1, and no, it's not
likely a race condition, and nothing weird like that ever happened on x86 yet,
and that's all common code (no arch details in the compound thing, infact it
must not even depend on MMU etc..).

it's ok to leave it in page_io.c since it's generating a fake-swapcache
entry, and there are writeback details etc.. that'd better stay in the
mm layer.
